Tanzania with E-5 and SHG Glass
Thanks all for the compliments. I've been in this hobby for a few years and I feel like my technique is starting to improve. Of course I'm fortunate to travel to places with interesting subject matter as the pictures show. Most of these are from the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire Park. The last picture is of wildebeest: lined-up facing one direction as there was a lion 150 yards to my back that they wanted to keep an eye on. I used my E-5 and E-M5 on this trip. The E-5 mostly for any moving subject such as lions and birds, and the E-M5 when things were still enough for the slower focus. I would consider 2 bodies the minimum for any safari trip - one ready for telephoto, and another ready for wider angle when the animals are close the vehicle, which they often are. Normally I used the 35-100 on one body and the 150mm for the other, swapping for the 50-200 when needed for far away game, with and without the 1.4TC. My 35-100 has seen the most use on safari than any other lens. My E-M5 pictures are posted in the m43 forum, and include the great migration and river crossing in the Serengeti.
